She leaves to mourn her death her two daughters, Mrs. Albert Clark and Mrs. F. C. DeSeelhorst, both of this place, and two sons, George in Denver, Colorado, and William in York, Nebraska. Deceased lived beyond the three score and ten period and for years has been a helpless invalid tenderly cared for by her daughters. She was a faithful christian woman and died in the hope of the immortality of the soul. She was ready and waiting when the messenger came and was glad to put off the veil of the flesh and enter into the realities of another and better life. The funeral was conducted from the residence by Rev. C. H. Marsh and her remains were followed to their last resting place by a large concourse of sympathizing friends.
